Blue Wave Rope Thread Terminals
Blue Wave Rope Thread Terminals are an innovative and simple concept for making up Dyneema rigging. A great alternative to stainless steel wires. No special rope splicing skills needed to form end terminations, making it the perfect solution for carrying on board a spare in case of failure on the main rig. Blue Wave’s new rope fitting is made of marine grade stainless steel with an eye-catching design and solid construction. Available in different sizes.
The construction and nature of these parts make them ideal for not only marine use but for architectural projects both inside and outside.
- High quality 316 Stainless Steel construction
- Lightweight compared to other terminal options
- Sizes to suit 4mm to 10mm Dyneema rope diameters
- Easy to splice the rope terminals
- For marine and architectural use
- Not all sizes mentioned in this overview are normally in stock
Additional Information For Rope Terminals
Blue Wave engineer and test break loads stated in the technical schemes and also guarantee safe and reliable performance.
When terminating high modulus fibre like Dyneema rope a knot, for example, can reduce the ropes strength by up to 60% and will seat and slip under load.
Blue Wave make end fittings for and test with spliced rope attachment.
For correct attachment/splicing contact your local rigger.
Safe working loads (SWL)
In addition, Blue Wave recommends that safe workloads should not to exceed one fifth (1/5) of the break loads listed.
How to avoid pitting corrosion
The best way to maintain stainless steel fittings from being affected by pitting corrosion is by rinsing them with fresh water. Especially mentionable when it hasn’t rained for a while!
A major factor in this is time. The longer the salty liquid stays, the more aggressive/quicker the reaction will be.
